8 Delivery Robot Startups for Last Mile Delivery

A couple of years ago, we told you about two companies that had developed what could be best described as Star Wars droid couriers. It seemed pretty niche at the time. Now we learn that there are more than a half-dozen startups offering delivery robot services, which seems to be part of a larger trend […]

Contactless Drone Delivery Companies Close to Scaling

The world has a very bad and serious case of cooties – and no one wants to catch it. That means many people have turned into hermits, avoiding contact at all costs. But this is the 21st century, so today’s recluse needs stuff, lots and lots of stuff. Naturally, e-commerce continues to soar (as Amazon […]

Momentus Stock – A Pure Play on Space Transport

Investing in a company with no revenues is like fronting some guy you don’t know 50 bones for a sack of chronic. First, you need to trust that he’ll actually return with your product.

Today, Velodyne has emerged as a leader in the LiDAR space having advanced surprisingly far in just under […]

SignalFire Machine Learning Algorithms Pick 8 Hot Startups

Imagine if you could analyze trillions of data points using machine learning algorithms to come up with a list of the absolute best startups to invest in. That’s no small task as there are an estimated 23,000 startups in Silicon Valley alone. One startup called SignalFire is doing just that by taking unstructured data from over 2 million data sources and then using […]

Is Self-Driving Truck Stock TuSimple a Buy?

The low-hanging fruit of autonomous driving would have to be semi trucks. They’re predominantly driven on highways which present fewer challenging conditions than city driving. They ply the same routes, over and over. (Nearly 80% of truck freight goods hauled in the U.S. are moved via 10% of the nation’s trade corridors.) And the shortage […]

8 Reusable Rocket Companies for Cheaper Space Travel

Earlier this month, we broke down the upcoming public offering from Rocket Lab, which is really the only private space company other than SpaceX that is consistently conducting commercial launches. They also share one other key element – both companies believe reusable rockets represent the future of the commercial launch industry. And they’re not alone. […]

How Augmented Reality Fits into IoT Enterprise Solutions

Last year, we decided to add the German IoT company TeamViewer (TMV.F) to our Disruptive Tech Portfolio. It scratched all of the right itches – highly profitable with a 100% subscription model, crazy growth across different metrics, strong regional diversification, and foreign currency exposure. (It also doesn’t suffer from the ARK effect.) Its connectivity platform […]
